overdue project…

My boys love mini-books.  They will sit and pour over their contents for hours, looking at every book that they can find.  I appreciate that, as do most scrapbookers.  They are looking at it and enjoying it, laughing and recounting the events of their lives.

So, they were very excited when I FINALLY made them a book from last year’s New Years Eve adventure… and I mean last year ringing in 2010. 

I just love this little book.  It is super frilly and somewhat over the top, but isn’t that what it is all about – playing, creating, and just having fun with it all?!?!?

To make this project a tad simpler, I pulled together my papers and book from one collection – Lush from My Mind’s Eye.  I then kept that pallet going with the embellishments and alphas, staying within the black, white, and gray range.  It made the whole project go fairly quickly.

So my next question is…  would you like to make a quick little “lush” mini-book?

If so, leave a comment here and I will draw a winner the end of the day Thursday for a complete little kit to make your own!

Includes:  Lush album and Bella Blvd paper from My Mind’s Eye, buttons, keys, tulle, ribbon, bling buttons from Bazzill, flowers from Prima and Maya Road, and a chandelier charm.

  1. Love it Steph! I love how you can fill a book with pictures of your boys and still have the frilly stuff work!

  2. Love how frilly! Very inspiring, I also have two boys and tend to pull away from the frilly items I love but this is awesome. I have decided, my boys are getting bling! Thanks Stef.

  3. Beautiful as always! I love your ability to add all the embellies, I still struggle with that and all of my pages are pretty plain. Looks like you guys had a great New Years–I just scrapped ringing in 2007, so you are WAY ahead of me friend! 🙂

  4. I love this! MME rocks! And I think it’s great that your little guys can enjoy looking back over a fun memory through the album. That IS what scrapbooks are for! Awesome!

  5. I love it and I love looking at mini books also. Just wish I had some time to work on them.

  6. Stephenie this is so pretty! My grandkids love looking at mini albums (and scrapbook pages) too. Thanks for a chance to win.

  7. Hi Stephenie!

    I am amazed at your cover! The combination of black and silver is so elegant! Isn’t it wonderful that your sons appreciate the hard work that goes into preserving their sweet little memories? So glad for you!
